The Show
Desperate to gain control over a city ravaged by civil war, Creon refuses to bury the body of Antigone's rebellious brother.

Outraged, she defies his edict.

Creon condemns the young woman, his niece, to be buried alive.

The people daren't object but the prophet Teiresias warns that this tyranny will anger thegods: the rotting corpse is polluting the city.

Creon hesitates and his fate is sealed.

The gods never move faster than when punishing men with the consequences of their own actions.

Jodie Whittaker plays Antigone and Christopher Eccleston plays Creon.
